If there’s one thing to know about the Chan Clan it’s the fact that they know how to show you a good time. When I was younger, I had the privilege of having four uncles who knew how to spoil my sister and I. From the time I was in my teeny toddler years to my teenage years, my Uncle Curtis was one who knew how to give my sister and I a fun ride. When times were dull as a kid, Uncle Curtis would take us around on fun excursions to anywhere and everywhere exciting that my parents might have lacked the energy for – Seaworld, Disneyland, Mission Beach, boogie boarding, golfing, and the list would go on and on. Today I am so happy that he’s passed that love juice onto his wife, and four kids Michelle, Jonathan, Grace and Matthew. From spending just a few hours with them, I can see the Chan family’s spice for life has continued on even past my childhood years. I could see so much joy in their family as oodles of giggles and laughter were captured on my camera from the shoot.
Each year they go on a photo excursion to get their yearly family portraits taken, to be sent out on Christmas cards. My Aunty Mae and Uncle Curtis are a very well connected couple and typically will send out a couple hundred Christmas cards to friends and family each year. I like to call her the Martha Stewart in our family. Not only she is super gifted at hospitality and entertaining, she also has her own floral business she started from the ground up from which she can boast over 20 years of floral design and event planning experience. Out of all the people she could have asked, this year I was SO privileged to be asked by Aunty Mae to do their Christmas photos! Don’t you think she did a splendid job picking out their outfits? Here are the photos that entailed! Enjoy : )
My favorite of the kids!! Doesn’t this photo just make you want to squeeze them?
Stay tuned for some more family portraits coming up in the next few weeks!
